Will Republicans Win Many Votes In The Retirement State Of Florida By Running On A Platform To Reduce Medicare?

Postby Devland » Tue Oct 10, 2017 9:49 am

If they were only talking about reducing benefits, no.
But what the Republicans have put forward is not a reduction of benefits but the complete elimination of Medicare and replacing it with Private for profit Insurance with vouchers that will do nothing to guarantee medical care.
In point of fact Medicare was created because seniors could not buy Medical Insurance because there is no profit to covering seniors who WILL get sick.

Enough seniors have seen what life was like for their grand parents before Medicare and don't want their children and grand children to have to go through that.

The Government has taken from them all their lives and promised the benefits they are receiving.


A means test is acceptable, but reducing those benefits for the poorest is unimaginable.


I think the Republicans would be well advised to not reduce the benefits to those in financial trouble, but instead, commence phasing Medicare out by allowing those currently entering the workforce to choose the option of not paying into that ponsy scheme if they make a lifelong effort to invest in an alternative method of providing for themselves.
